Upledger CranioSacral Therapy Can Help with PTSD

CranioSacral Therapy can help with PTSD.

The following blog post is sponsored by Upledger Institute International.

What is CranioSacral Therapy? CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment modality that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, CST, therapists focus on removing restrictive forces within the membrane system that surrounds the surface of the brain, the bones of the skull, and the vertebral column to relieve pain, reduce stress, and help with relaxation.

Is CST Effective in Treating Symptoms of PTSD? Research and numerous case studies support CST as an effective therapy to assist with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, concussions, combat stress, panic attacks, insomnia, flashbacks, chronic anxiety, and more.

Veterans Report Improvement in Symptoms of PTSD after CST. Upledger Institute Clinic, located at Upledger Institute International headquarters in Florida, held a five-day program in November 2021: Veterans Therapy—Integrative Treatment Approach for Combat Stress and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


Seven veterans who suffer with PTSD and other challenges were treated by a 26-member multidisciplinary therapist team who used CranioSacral Therapy techniques and other healing modalities aimed at helping the body heal itself. At the conclusion of the program, the veterans reported increased mobility and energy levels, decreased pain levels, and improved sleep. Many of the veterans had accessed other treatment over the years, and one stated, “This was the most transformative process I have attended in 30 years.”

About Upledger Institute International. Upledger Institute International, named for the developer of CST, is recognized worldwide as the leading provider of CranioSacral Therapy educational programs, advanced treatment options, and products.

November 14–18, 2022, will be the next program for our veterans. For more information on this program or other group intensive programs, visit upledgerclinic.com

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
